Promised Land
Super Rockin Version!, Sooo many good ones but this is tops for me. To be in the best of the best its gotta have that explosive out of the gates start
22
Bird Song
A wonderful Jerry/Phil duet on this one. Not quite the legend of Veneta, but still very strong in its own right.
8
Playin' In The Band
A very, very heady version, 2 days prior to the famous Veneta show.
14
The Other One
Even though it cuts out after 16mins, a really fine 1972 TOO. Worth 16 minutes of anyones time.
15
Cold Rain and Snow
Kicks off arguably the best show of '72. Tight, fun, and rockin'. Great show opener.
8
He's Gone
Note for note precise, beautiful playing. The outro is lovely and doesn't descend into madness. Donna gives it a nice gospel touch.
5
Loser
Powerful tight playing. C.Miller cleanup, boys playing the 1st set like their lives depended on it. Peak Dead.
16
Black Peter
An ultimate performance. Jerry's voice is in perfect shape. Powerful, chilling version that will make your hair stand on end. Shamefully overlooked.
14
Friend of the Devil
Sparkles. Has an electric country sound that just crackles with energy. Perfect execution.
10
Black Throated Wind
Flawless. It just leaves me breathless how good this show is.
8
Stella Blue
A brand new Stella Blue that was lost and is now found, Dave's Picks 24 is here, and it's a great one...
9
Truckin'
Monster Truckin>O1
3
Jack Straw
The most active, detailed ’72 Jack Straw I can recall.
2
One More Saturday Night
Not a song i usually post or even dig. This one really has some solid energy at this under the radar show.
3
Bertha
A few flubs at the start, but they make up for it by playing for their life afterwards, crazy intensity
1
El Paso
Tight reading of this classic.
2
Sugar Magnolia
Great encore
3
Beat it on Down The Line
this is a perfectly fine version, but this is about finding other songs from this concert that are registered but not showing.
